Mental Health & Substance Abuse Coalition, Inc.

MHSA Coalition Strategic Plan

 In 2019, leaders came together and worked to develop a strategic plan that would guide the work of the MHSA Coalition from 2020 to 2025. An ambitious plan with those in need at its heart, this plan seeks to create greater collaboration, helping all in the community to work smarter while still tirelessly pursing their own organizational missions.
